Whiteley Yew Tree Drive bus gate
Executive Member decision day 12 May 2015
On 12 May 2015 the Executive Member for Economy, Transport and Environment will consider a report on permanently opening the bus gate.
The report to the Executive Member includes a recommendation that the County Council should permanently open the bus gate through making the current experimental Traffic Regulation Orders, which were advertised and have been in place since December 2013/January 2014, permanent. These Orders are;
‘The Hampshire (Yew Tree Drive, Whiteley) (Experimental Revocation of Prohibition of Entry (Except Buses)) Order 2013’ - the effects of this will be to allow access to Yew Tree Drive between its junction with A3051 Botley Road and its south-western junction with Clydesdale Road.
‘The Hampshire (Yew Tree Drive and Rookery Avenue, Whiteley) (Experimental Prohibition of Heavy Commercial Vehicles) Order 2014’ – the effects of this will be to;
(i)Prohibit heavy commercial vehicles (HCVs) on Yew Tree Drive, between its roundabout junction with Botley Road and its junction with Clydesdale Road; and
(ii)Prohibit HCVs except for loading and unloading on:
(a)Yew Tree Drive, between its junction with Clydesdale Road and its junction with Rookery Avenue (including all roads with an access therefrom)
(b)Rookery Avenue, between its roundabout junction with Solent Way and its south-western termination (including all roads with an access therefrom)
